Saylor Promotes Bitcoin’s Role as an Inflation Hedge Gains Momentum

Saylor has consistently advocated for Bitcoin, hailing it as the digital equivalent of gold and a crucial strategic asset for Treasury reserves.

In a recent interview with American financial expert Stephen Gardner, Saylor highlighted the enduring asset inflation rate of 7-8% in the United States over the past century, contrasting it with consumer inflation, which has averaged around 2%. He also noted that asset inflation in countries with weaker economies often surpasses double digits, reaching approximately 14%.

MicroStrategy’s continued dedication to Bitcoin reflects a broader trend of institutional adoption of cryptocurrencies as a store of value and an inflation hedge in today’s evolving financial landscape.
